Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Graphical presentation of models of the physical world is an important aspect of current and future applications of computers. Students are introduced to the basic concepts of manipulating and modelling objects in 2D, 3D and 4D. Techniques are introduced for realistically visualising models of objects in ways that exploit our visual senses.

Principal learning outcomes

"At the end of this module, a successful student will: understand the mathematics behind geometric transformations and techniques for modelling objects; understand the techniques used to approximate the physical process of image generation; and have an understanding of how these techniques are made available through graphical programming standards. "
